Children's Support Services
Children’s Psychosocial Group:
Groups utilize role modeling/playing, peer interactions and staff instruction to support social, emotional and behavioral development of children/youths. Participants will learn how to follow instructions, get along with peers, control behaviors and learn to problem solve more independently to help them be successful in the home, school and community settings.
Parent Support and Advocacy (Parent Support & Family Services):
PASS program acts as a bridge to ensure the family’s full involvement in their child’s treatment process. This program provides advocacy for parents regarding their child’s educational needs, support with access to community resources including financial and housing assistance, information about the juvenile justice system, and parent training either on a one-on-one basis or in a class/group setting.
Children’s Attendant Care:
This is a one-on-one service between a staff and child. The staff assists the child with such things as staying on task, respecting authority/peers, communicating with others, managing anger and using age appropriate social skills. Service is to help the child function in natural everyday life settings such as home, school, and community.
The goal of the program is for both the parent and youth to become more involved in their community, build meaningful friendships, and promote family connectedness through communication. Y-Link gives it members the chance to speak out against the stigma of mental illness through advocacy work and volunteerism, set personal goals, explore educational/vocational opportunities and establish a peer support network for both the youths and the parents.
